Hello? Grin

I personally think that Hartwall Arena is way too big for band like Melrose. If have read/heard that they are VERY intense band and that usually means that gigantic(?) arenas are way too huge for these kind of bands.
Great if you are in front of the stage but bore if you are way back sitting around? Shocked

So i?m gonna go and drink some beer and watch football ?til Axl shows up? beer
"Go Portugal Go" (Brazil was the 1st choise but...well you know what happened...)? ok

ps. anyone knows what kind of t-shirts are on sale?!?!?!?  drool

There were pics of the tour shirts in one of the early tour threads. I couldn't find it now. About 5-6 designs. Two of them good looking enough to buy myself. Matter of taste of course!  ok

Hanoi Rocks would have been the right choice for the warmup but it seems Mike and Axl aren't even friends anymore.  Undecided

So, anyone else's ears ringing? I'm thinking about whether I should use earplugs for the next gig or not... Tonight it seemed like the volume got a bit higher after the first few songs, or was it just me?

Not really, I used plugs in the beginning but couldn't hear anything, I was at 110 and the mix sounded pretty good (bumblefoots guitar was bit too low in the mix though but in Dublin, Download and Globen I practically heard none of his playing during the songs so..)

Like Makkonen said Areena was too big for Melrose, smaller place would be better for them

Dude, good to have met you there. My first HTGTH-face  Grin

And regarding ears, no not ringing, but definitely a sense of having being subjected to a.... well... a GNR gig  Smiley

Final comment: Dizzy's Don't You Ever Leave Me was coolness! And Robin's Finlandia came waaaaaay too early.

And also: How fucking stupid fucking moronic idiot troll do you have to be to diss Axl's voice???  confused

This is from a Finnish paper called Iltalehti, written by Heta Hyttinen.

Guns N' Roses gig was a one man show

The long await paid off when Axl Rose and the boys came to Hartwall Arena

Guns N' Roses two-day set in Hartwall Areena in Helsinki started off with a pompous fashion yesterday. Although the personnel in the band has changed during the years like in a revolving door and for many the Guns are already buried, yesterday's show proved that some of the world's greatest rock songs just can't be forgotten.

Sometimes ago in Roskilde the band was 50 minutes late, and now they topped that and came on stage after loacl Melrose an hour and 45 minutes later than schedule. But the schedule change was quite expected.

Very simple stage set was decorated with red drapes and backdrop screens. Coming on stage the band started quite a commotion in sold-out Arena, and there was no mistaking of the night's number one star: Axl Rose left the rest of the band in his shadow, but the band, too, was very good.

The European Tour that started in late May has been praised, and also yesterday's show offered a great set of nostalgia. One can only imagine what amount of memories went on the minds of 11000 spectators while November Rain was played.

The concert, which was sold out in record time, was similar than previous tours. The crowd, very diverse in age, didn't mind at all to hear first WTTJ and ISE, and the show that included practically all the band's greatest hits offered many apex moments, like Dizzy Reed's piano version of Hanoi Rocks' Don't You Ever Leave Me.

Songs from the Chinese Democracy album have been heard before, too, but the show was clearly build on older material, and the Finnish audience appreciated that.

It remains to be seen how a tour consisting more material from the new album would go through to the same crowd.

---

Axl allowed photographers to the show "in the last minute". There's also another story where they interview Mike Monroe about Axl. There's nothing new or interesting really. Mike wasn't able to attend yesterday's show.

How do you call a show with that many solo's "a one man show"? Ok, all in all a fare review. Or something. Not exactly a deep account on what took place.

To my own "review" I have to add that at times some songs' vocals sounded like almost playbackish 'cause Axl hit the notes exactly like on record. I mean perhaps even too perfect for a live rock gig. Or maybe I was standing in an acoustic sweet spot  Grin

The other daytime paper, Ilta-Sanomat, also has a very positive review. They concentrate more to the lateness of the show, but not really in a negative way. The headline "GUNS N' ROSES DID IT AGAIN!", the closing caption "Welcome finally back, Axl!"

Read that too. I bet the reporter got wasted while waiting and couldn't really write anything specific regarding the gig? hihi

 love Grin ok ok Kiss

I was there last night and Axl sounded more than perfect (i was expecting less quality in his voice, to be honest) I was quite surprised to see people that didn't really seem to be fans, and some leaving early...makes me wonder if this was what made a lack of tickets for true fans?
Anyone saw them partying somewhere? They didn't go to Onnela, right? Or on the rocks? Where could they be partying tonight???

Axl was awesome, despite the hair  Undecided

Some idiots were leaving during new songs to get beer next to me, what the fuck is that? can't you drink your beer enough on a normal day?
I saw alot of people leaving the floor during some songs, got a bit angry about that 'cause I only got seats? Undecided also there was these "brought my friend who isn't even intrested" people on the floor. they should've just stay home and leave the ticks for someone who is really intrested to hear GN'R...
